My new "Golden Rule" 10g planted tank

Trying my hand at a 10g planted tank following the "golden rule". Still a work in progress, still tweaking as plants are growing and getting the look I want.

1) Measuring the tank to find the focal point - 6 1/2 weeks ago


2) Setting up the hardscape. This went through many iterations.


3) Plant delivery


4) Planted


5) Water!


6) Regular light vs Plant light, built up the substrate in the back a little more and curved the path more.


7) All lit up and waiting for fish


8) Hardscape change


9) Another hardscape change - 4 weeks ago


10) ANOTHER hardscape change


11) Plant adding/pruning, more hardscape changes - 3 weeks ago


12) Top view - Yesterday


13) Still a work in progress - Today
